Old Bay Recipes (That Don't Involve Crabs)

Crabs and Old Bay go together like peanut butter and jelly. There's no pairing that's more classic, more timeless, more iconic. But that doesn't mean your Old Bay has to be reserved for crabs only, you know. In fact, you can pull out that big bright canister for all kinds of things! Maybe you've got a shellfish allergy, or maybe you just feel like eating something different tonight. Either way, there's plenty that you can do.

First of all, let's talk sides. We're pretty sure you've had those mouthwatering crab chips, but did you know that you can make your own? Yes, you can whip up a batch of crab chips right from the comfort of your own kitchen, and you don't have to run out in the cold and wind to grab a bag from your local grocery store. We can pretty much guarantee you've got all of the ingredients already! 

Don't have the ingredients? You can stash them in this Old Bay can bag when you buy groceries next!

Want to get your potato fix a different way? No probs. How about some mouthwatering Old Bay fries? This recipe comes right from McCormick, so you know it's gonna be good. And if you're ready to make things a little fancier, well, there are always Old Bay parmesan tortellini bites

Okay! Time to move to the main course. A crab cake isn't the only dish that could use the Marylander's favorite spice blend to make it even better. Fried chicken can also be made pretty darn good thanks to the magic of Old Bay. Prefer red meat to poultry? Don't worry, you're in luck too -- Old Bay can make a burger perfect for any Marylander, too.

Not even dessert is immune to the power of this spicy delight. Believe it or not, you can make Old Bay and potato chip ice cream right at home. If you're a fan of, say, sweet and sour sauce or chocolate-covered potato chips, this is going to be a flavor that you'll want to eat every day (even when it's freezing outside).

What about you? What are some of your favorite Old Bay recipes that don't involve crabs? Let us know in the comments!
